Owners description

Established by the inimitable Freda, Cafè Paradiso immediately set the bar for local cuisine and, from its inception, introduced us to a variety of dishes and ingredients seldom before experienced locally.

Loving the idyllic setting and the warm ambience, Capetonians eagerly tucked into exotic and ‘foreign’ fare such as tzatziki, dolmades and babaganoush as well as the delicious country-style dishes which emanated from Paradiso’s bustling kitchens. Joined by three more formidable women, Laurille, Lynn and Mapula, Frieda and her team remained the heart of city trading with a lineage of values forming the foundation of this amazing establishment.

  • Great food and setting! Restaurant wines are very expensive, but corkage at R50 makes up for the latter.

  • Had a lovely late morning brunch, sat out side with the perfect mountain views to the side of me. Was in the mood for something sweet yet savoury so I went for the sweet corn fritters stacked with bacon, crème fraiche and maple syrup. It was delightful. Good service to add . Will be back again.
